These devices are able to do almost anything, from maximising your home security to feeding the pets. Either way, they are helpful, fun and easy to use. Check out what’s on our list for the best smart home devices.
The Amazon Echo
This voice controlled speaker is virtually your own assistant. All you have to do is speak to the device and if you have the right technology to go along with it, the Echo will work like a charm! For example, say “Alexa turn the heating on in the lounge”. You will need a thermostat such as Hive to allow Alexa to work. Check out a review here.

You can also ask Alexa to Google information, play music and tell jokes.
Laminated Glass in All Opening Rooflights
Now, this one isn’t so much a device, but more like a feature that every home needs. Opening rooflights have been designed to combine energy efficiency with effortless automation, as well as contemporary design.
You can order your opening skylights online at EOS Rooflights. We suggest this company over others as all of their models are safe, secure and have laminated glass in all double glazed units.
All of their opening models have an insulated upstand, allowing an actuator to fit within it, rather than having a separate frame for the motor. Order stock sizes today for fast delivery. Click here for your quote.

- Nest Learning Thermostat: the ability to control radiators and water heating by connecting wirelessly to your boiler.
- Elgato Eve Degree: this tiny weather sensor can measure humidity, temperature and atmospheric pressure.
- Philips Hue Ambiance: these lightbulbs can be set to 16 million colours with the automated timer.
